Weekend Agenda | DIARY
Posted on September 28, 2012 by Refinery
Come the weekend, we share an agenda of things to do, see, discover, watch, eat, read, cook, bake, shop, drink, buy, listen to, visit, wear and many other verbs over the next few days.
1. Listen: The Rubens first came on the scene as part of Triple J’s Unearthed and had a slew of hits. They relocated to New York to record their debut self-titled album with David Kahne – producer of names such as Paul McCartney, The Strokes and Lana Del Ray – and the result is a wonderful mix of soul, pop, blues and rock.
2. Watch: Candy Chang turned an abandoned house into a giant chalkboard asking a fill-in-the-black question: Before I die I want to… The answers were surprising, poignant, funny – watch the TED Talk to find out more.
3. Make: Homemade Nutella! Not much more to say other than try this easy recipe from blog Reclaiming Provincial.
4. Read: Melissa Magsaysay delivers a stunning visual ride through Los Angeles’ fashion past, addressing it’s far-reaching influence on the style evolution of the world at large. City of Style: Exploring Los Angeles Fashion from Bohemian to Rock gives readers a taste of the retail landscape, a guide to stores and shops, and helpful tips on how to buy and wear key pieces for a number of styles.
5. Drink: Spring is the time to venture back outdoors and gather poolside with refreshment in hand and with the warming of temperatures, comes more suitable wine for the season. We asked Chief Winemaker Luke Fitzpatrick for his pick of spring-appropriate Clovely Estate wines.
6. Bake: For those gluten-free eaters out there, and anyone else who likes delicious baked treats, get your aprons on and into the kitchen this weekend to try out Baked Apple Cider Donuts from blog Boulder Locavore.
7. Watch: The old age debate – Paris vs. New York. Based on the book of the same name by graphic designer Vahram Muratvan, this quirky short film tallies the French capital and Manhattan using graphics ranging from experiences at museums to walking along the respective city’s pavements.
8. Shop Online vintage store Lonely Dot doesn’t just model their pieces – they create a beautifully photographed lookbook every now and then. Some current themed ones includes: The Last Tango, Just Like A Woman, Paradise Lost and Pleasantville. Check out their goodies and say goodbye to your wage…
9. Watch: Kelly is the latest from Brisbane-based playwright Matthew Ryan and a fast-moving, action-packed story portraying the infamous cult heroes in a new light. The quick-fire banter between the characters, Ned Kelly and his brother Dan, resonates with a crass but irresistible brand of Australian humour. This is a must-see show running at QPAC until 20 October.
